    The standard 'cooler' as people call it is a heat exchanger I believe... People are still using them in there 300hp builds so think your safe to that figure.

    What power you wanting to goto?

    i have a sixteen row one fitted now(running 308 hp),but i need too really fit a fmi as at the mo i have eds side mount.and its getting a bit warm at high revs(49'c at 5400rpm),but the oil cooler is in the way of fitting the fmi so i might take it off,plumb the factory oil cooler back inn to fit the fmi..what do you think?.i can allways put some 10w60 oil in too cope with the extra heat??not sure what too do really..

    Only you can say if there be enough room... As when you try it and see, modifying is all trial and error mate.
